Full description

Leave Rome's hustle and bustle behind and head to Tuscany for the day.

Enjoy a guided town of Montepulciano and eat a delicious 3-course lunch with an Italian wine-tasting experience you won't forget.

A comfortable, air-conditioned coach will pick you up in Rome. As you drive towards rolling hills, your expert tour guide will explain Tuscany’s rich culture and answer any questions you might have about the day ahead. 

First, enjoy a walking tour of the hill town of Montepulciano. Take in an ancient but still-functioning wine cellar and ruins that pre-date Rome. Next, visit San Biagio, a 16th-century Renaissance church with a travertine facade welcoming in the sunlight and exquisite decorations inside.

Just a short drive away awaits a delicious Tuscan lunch. Enjoy a 3-course meal with wine pairings in the wine cellar of an authentic vineyard farmhouse, including the famous Brunello di Montalcino and varieties from the vineyard itself. 

Buy your souvenir Tuscan wine here, or wait for the final stop: Pienza. Your tour leader will offer insights, but your time is yours: shopping for pecorino cheese, balsamic vinegar, wines, and other local specialties, finding the right photo opportunity, or simply wandering the streets like a local.

Next, return to Rome in air-conditioned comfort — fulfilled, relaxed, and ready for the next day.

We had a lovely day! The driver Andrea is very skilled and kind. Our guide Ana was amazing and caring, we learned a lot about Italia’s history with her. Firstly, they took us to a shop were we could buy goods (chocolates, wine, truffle products and olive oil) for a good price. Then, we went to Montepulciano and saw the place where Twilight was filmed (nice as a former fan). It was such an interesting medieval city. The family in the winery welcome us with excellent food and wine (wish to repeat this one someday). The day finished with the astonishing view in Pienza. Rate 10/10. Definitely recommend this tour.

El tour estuvo bueno, el guía muy atento y nos hacía la travesía muy entretenida y divertida fue espectacular pero cuando paramos para comer todo estuvo bien hasta que la comida nos llegó, la pasta dio mucho que desear y el postre igual y con el vino daban muy poco para tomar, en fin que la comida fue lo que menos me gustó pero de ahí en fuera todo estuvo magnífico y los sitios adonde fuimos muy interesantes.

From the beginning of the trip the tour guide Valentina was very welcoming and ensured her guests were treated with the upmost respect. Valentina was very knowledgeable from the history of certain areas of our trip to her recommendations for food and sites to see after the tour. The overall experience of the locations visited we’re breathtaking. The additional tour guides were also welcoming and informative. If I were to visit Rome again I would highly book another trip with this company to ensure I get the best experience during my time in Italy.
